Was married to a man from Pakistan in 1995-2000. He tried to make me like that. Told him he married an independent girl from USA. Knew that before we got married considering we met at work. Couple of times he hit me. Hit him back. Once leaving a hand print on his face for a week. He had punched me in the mouth and Drew blood. We separated in 1996. But couldn't get divorced until 2000. After my first hubby beat me and cheated on me I vowed no man would ever get away with treating me like that again.

I DON'T DARE TO PUT IN PRINT WHAT I REALLY THINK. THE WHOLE REASON FOR THIS BEHAVIOUR IS BECAUSE THEY......KNOW....WE WOMEN ARE THE BRAINS AND THEY ARE THE BRAWN...SIMPLE AS THAT. THEY REALISE THEY CANNOT OUT THINK US, WE ARE BORN MULTI TASKERS. MOST MEN SIMPLY CANNOT COMPETE WITH WOMEN. DO I LIKE MEN ??? I ADORE THEM BUT ONLY THOSE WITH INTELLIGENCE, A SENSE OF HUMOUR AND KNOWING THAT WE ARE EQUAL IN THE FACT THAT AS A COUPLE WE CAN HAVE EVERYTHING. I ACCEPT HIM AS HE IS, HE ACCEPTS ME AS I AM. IN OTHER WORDS WE SHARE OURSELVES.

I live in South Africa and to say we should have that here is utter nonsense. I can well remember when I was in Saudi Arabia seeing a man and a woman coming out to our plane and I assumed he would be in First Class and she in Economy - not at all uncommon. However, she was in First and when she was settled in the man left the plane leaving a very attractive lady as she had by then after his absence thrown off the abaya and hijab. She did not put them back on when we got to London.

A person that needs to control like that has little faith in their own control over themselves, to oppress is wrong it's that simple, this world is no where near fair to all who are born into it! I don't believe men are without brains, there are intelligent women and intelligent men, the men that learn this way of behaving and adopt it are not too bright the smarter ones have to appear to do it for to veer from it may mean that their own safety is at risk so they pretend to appear to do it but are smart and compassionate enough to know it's wrong, many horrible things and injustices still occurring in life, we do not learn for the betterment of all, greed, sexual aberrations are among us still! Very sad indeed!

You say they wear only two pieces of clothing? Don't you mean there are these two pieces that they must wear. I would hope they wear underwear under that long dress!

Makes my skin crawl. Despise their treatment of women. We are not chattels. The worst part is the young girls getting married off to older men.

Sad no person should be treated that way, men and women are equal in the eyes of god. Shame on the country that treats them as second class humans

Thank God I live in America where I can do lots of things without a mans request or say so. Freedom was given long years ago for women in this country.

Trixie Pettman-South, Same here Trixie. I told him we are adults when we met. We should treat each other as equals. You are not my boss nor am I yours. It's kind of, you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours. We get on beautifully. Much more, he likes to cook. I can't complain.
